Default Dating an Early Victor?

I recently purchased a Victor with outside HR and part number. I realize this can comfortably be dated to c1892-c1905. Some other characteristics are:

Modified/medium ribbed handle
Reinforced Lip on the rim
Distinct Reinforcing Pad for Handle

The WAGS Erie chart has something to say about these last two, ( They were being phased out in Eries by the Third series (also 1892-1905). By virtue of the fact that this Victor still retains both of these characteristics, (which I suspect were phased out independently), may I deduce that the Victor was likely cast on the early side of the 1892-1905 range? Please chime in.

victors were made very early... and the characteristics seem to mirror the early erie series.
there are 3 or 4 different victor markings.
the more writing on the bottom, the 'newer' it is.
